Queer Pride & Summer Solstice Fair!
Join Root Mamma for our first Queer Pride & Summer Solstice Fair!
This will be a fabulous day full of healing, community, sunshine, and FUN! If you are a queer-identified person or an ally, this is the day for you! Let's all celebrate one another & the abundant gifts of summer! Let's be PROUD of our identities, our gifts, our talents, our big hearts, our unique selves, and our community!
